Russia's Severomorsk Anti-Submarine Ship Taking Part in Drills With Pakistani Navy - Fleet

MOSCOW, Nov 30 (Sputnik) Russian Northern Fleet's Severomorsk anti-submarine ship is participating in joint Russian-Pakistani anti-piracy drills called Arabian Monsoon-2018, the fleet's press service said on Friday.
"Today, the Northern Fleet's Severomorsk anti-submarine ship has started its participation in the active phase of the international Russian-Pakistani anti-piracy exercise Arabian Monsoon-2018," the press service's statement, published on the official website of the Russian Defense Ministry, said.
The drills are being held in the northern parts of the Arabian Sea, in the Indian Ocean, with the Russian and Pakistani sailors training joint actions aimed at countering piracy and other illicit activities in the sea, the statement said.
